International School Partnerships

Overview 

Our International School Project allows for an enriching exchange to occur between two schools that work together to foster student connections and enhance overall learning. New methods of instruction are suggested, attempted, and modified by teachers within the project. We facilitate a connection between an international school and a rural Nepal school in hopes of allowing rural Nepali schools to build upon their instruction methods. Students communicate between schools through online collaborative projects and pen-pal letters which allows students to build upon their language and writing skills. This project also promotes a cultural exchange among students who learn to embrace diversity and differences among various cultures. Ultimately, through this valuable experience, their understanding of other ways of life is greatly enhanced.

Objectives 

  1. Strengthen student relationships and foster new friendships 
  2. Improve student’s verbal and written skill set
  3. Foster a diverse and appreciative knowledge of cultures and values
  4. Enhance academic curriculums in Nepal based on communication and feedback with partnering schools

Implementation Model 

We strive to incorporate the feedback of all project members to ensure maximum success. Particularly, obtaining comments from teachers to make sure the curriculum is improved and children continue fostering new friendships and learning skills.
